Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Happy First Day of Spring

Here is a cute Springtime card that I made for

Sketch Challenge Group
Pink, Yellow, Lilac

I used this cute image from Karen's Doodles. Isn't he cute.
The background paper is from an earlier challenge at
Stamping Dragon. I colored him using Copics. The fun sketch
was created by Robyn at I Did It Creations.

Speaking of I Did It Creations
a fun new forum on the block.
We are having a 'Meet the Members Party'
March 24 - Mar 28
There will be lots of fun with games, challenges, contests and
even classes. Doesn't that sound like fun. Everyone is
invited to come and have fun with all of us.
I made the above Badge for you to post on your blog. I promise it
will shrink to fit your sidebar. I don't know why I made it so large, so
you wouldn't miss it I guess.
Right click on image to Save Image As, open your dashboard
click layout, add a gadget and fill in the box. Please link to
I Did It Creations with this link
I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

Last for today but not least is this week's challenge at
Our theme is Spring, a Time for New Beginnings.
The image that we are using for inspiration is posted on
the challenge. Here is my sample.

The image is from Suzee Que on Flickr. She has an amazing array
of images that she generously shares with everyone.
Soartful Challenges is being sponsored this month by
Glitterbabe Greetings. This link takes you to her fun blog and
from there you can visit her Etsy shop.

This is just in....
Squigglefly is having a mini new release of images today. And,
they have a downloadable copy of their wonderful magazine
2009 Yearly Roundup
featuring cards by the Squigglefly artists, design team and
Don't miss it.

Have a wonderful First Day of Spring.
I'm going out and pull some weeds today.

2 lovely cards. The top one is my favourite, such a sweet image, and I like the way you've added the buttons. I've got that image, but I can't remember where it's from either.

Tow lovely cards here. My favourite is the first one as well. I can't resist anything cute and cuddly and therefore the gorgeously coloured in teddy wins the day. Thanks for joining in with the Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight. I hope to see you back again very soon. Best wishes, Kym xxx
